2016 Kansas City Turkey-Shoot Sonex Gathering

We had a great gathering 26 Nov 2016 in Kansas City, with 3 Sonex aircraft and a C-170 flying in, despite the Kansas winds. A total of 6 builders/pilots, numerous spouses and kids, and a bunch of other interested people joined us for breakfast at We B Smokin BBQ, conveniently located on the Miami County Airport (K81), where the gross weight of our combined breakfasts outweighed the standard 170 lb FAA pilot!

With breakfast completed and bellies full, we loaded up and flew a few formation passes by the restaurant for the local photographer. With some luck, we'll earn a place of honor on the wall of fame in the restaurant.

Shout-outs to Gus Schlegel, Ray Kurian, Ron Sipple and Bob Mika for supporting this event on short notice, and for all you other Midwest area Sonex pilots, make sure to attend the 2017 Midwest Sonex fly-in.... the BBQ alone is worth the flight!
